Art Obligation : Pat Hanly

In the1980s I had the privilege of having Pat Hanly and Claudia Pond-Eyley as my drawing instructors – fantastic inspiring stuff.  As a student and as a lecturer in architecture I continued to learn and to look at “the big issues” with Pat.  While sorting through files this last week I came across a handwritten memo (below) which was handed out at Pat’s funeral a few years ago – detailing Pat’s view on Art.  It is always good to be reminded as to the fundamentals of art and design – especially from the grave!
